  57. 2005 Monday: About 50 miles north of Kabul, Afghanistan, something goes awry at a munitions dump.  The place blows up killing dozens of people with no full accounting of how many took a one-way trip to meet with Allah or how many others were left devastated one way or another.  Wow.

  69. 2016 Monday A: Elsewhere, the Catholic Church in the Philippines urges its followers to reject Roderigo Duterte who seems to be little more than a whack job.  Down in Venezuela, El Presidente Nicolas Maduro orders clocks in his nation to be moved forward by half-an-hour since the country is facing a major electricity shortage and that somehow moving the clocks up by 30 minutes will alleviate the suffering of the people.  YOU know what will alleviate their suffering?  Your fat neck dangling from a noose in the center of Caracas.  POS communist.

  73. 2020 Saturday: After California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom orders ONLY the beaches of Orange County closed, the sheriff of the county says, ‘he will not enforce the order.’  Meanwhile, on the COVID-19- Wuhan Flu front- confirmed global cases are 3,424,254; confirmed deaths sit at 243,674; and confirmed recoveries are 1,092,715.  In the United States, the Kung Flu Virus Crisis- given us by the communist Chinese- is thus: confirmed cases sit at 1,157,782, confirmed deaths at 67,046, and confirmed recoveries are 150,934.  Meanwhile, the communist Chinese claim the following numbers (let’s see if they have changed): confirmed cases: 88,423; confirmed deaths: 4,633; and confirmed recoveries: 81,785!  Which is almost the same as one week ago, lying scumbags.  Around the United States, more states continue reopening and no upticks in the Coronavirus Crisis are seen so to all authoritarian governors out there, you better lighten up.  (It is interesting to note that Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer is still whining about ‘Confederate and swastika flags being seen at protests but every piece of film we have looked at, those flags are nowhere to behold.  ANTIFA- do your job, go to Michigan, and protest this b***h).

  81. 2021 Sunday G: Political News I– Like Senator Mitt Romney, RINO-UT, Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, is having a challenging time within her party for being the neo-lib that she is by going against President Donald J. Trump.  She is expected to be removed from GOP leadership by June at the latest.   Next former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-NV, says that ‘Lockheed-Martin possesses UFO wreckage. This is getting better all the time.   We are looking forward to the upcoming UFO report next month- if the feds actually release it.  Elsewhere, the runoff for the U.S. House seat in Texas 6th congressional district is between two Republicans: Susan Wright (19.2%), backed by President Donald J. Trump and Jake Ellzey (13.8%), which has the Democrats sobbing gobs of tears as they genuinely thought they were going to propel third-place runner-up Jana Lynne Sanchez (13.4%) into the House to help a beleaguered “Mumbles” Pelosi.  
  82. 2021 Sunday H: Political News II– Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, continues sharing his views on Afghanistan and says we must withdraw from the country NOW.  We concur wholeheartedly and think we should have been out of there before President George W.

Formed in the late 1950s as the Hawks, the group that would come to be known as the Band evolved in 1967.  Featuring four Canadians and one American, the band erupted onto the stage with their first album, “Music from the Big Pink,” (July 01, 1968).  In some ways, the band was a throwback in that having performed with Bob Dylan for a lengthy time, they combined elements of acoustic folks with rock and roll with the music of the prairies, the back-hills, and other American-Canadian forms in an extremely alluring package of sound.  The band features Rick Danko (bass, vocals, and fiddle), Robbie Robertson (guitars and vocals), Levon Helm (drums, percussion, vocals, mandolins, and tambourines), Richard Manuel (pianos, organs, and vocals), and Garth Hudson (keyboards and saxophones).  Their first album touched the souls of many and put them on a path to stardom, one that would take them to Woodstock in 1969 and beyond.  One of the big hits was “The Weight.”  What we have here is the 50th anniversary edition of this celebrated album, “Music from Big Pink 50th Anniversary Edition,” a beefed-up effort featuring all manner of additional gems for your listening pleasure.  The album came out on January 01, 2018.  We hope you will seek this album out and consider adding it to your growing collection of nothing but the absolute best in rock music.  You will be glad you did, of that, we guarantee.

Trump reports that he has been tested for this rapidly spreading virus after coming into contact with an infected individual, a close subordinate of Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro.   His test is negative. At least 16 U.S. states have closed their schools in an attempt to staunch the spread of the Panda Pandemic.  Meanwhile, election season continues what with Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, D-VT, winning the Northern Marianas caucuses.  You go, Bernie, you go! 
  64. 2021 Sunday: Here we are, another day- stick around and discover what the Chi-Coms and their stooge in the White House are up to today- you know you want to know.   First, Department of Homeland Security Director Antonio Mayorkas orders FEMA to the southern border to help care for the thousands of illegal alien brats crossing the border.  It is akin to a ‘children’s crusade,’ one we must stop with minefields, antipersonnel and antivehicular barriers, ditches, trenches, foo gas pits, and heavy weapons positions.   Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador is asking the Biden administration, “WTF?”  He says the Biden administration policies are increasing the flow of transnational criminals, human traffickers, diseased people, and even terrorists.  It must stop.  We encourage the Mexicans to militarize their southern border.  Once people begin trying to force their way in, you shoot of them, they’ll stop coming.  F**k these illegals wearing these ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden shirts.   Speaking of the BORDER CRISIS, that dimwitted dingbat, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, says that ‘Joe Biden inherited the border crisis.’  The border was mostly secure whereas now, it’s a disaster.  Oh, if only UFW boss Cesar Chavez were alive, he’d have union members arrayed along the southern border beating the s**t out of these people as they tried to cross it.[xii]  Even RINO Senator Bill Cassidy, RINO-LA, says that ‘Joe Biden is responsible for the disaster on the southern border.’  (He’s trying to get back in the good graces of Republican voters after voting to convict President Donald J. Trump).
  65. 2021 Sunday A: Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden’s policies have led to the intentional flooding of the United States with hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens.’  Real Clear Politics White House reporter Phil Wegman says that ‘family encounters of illegal aliens went up 164-percent this past February.’  NOT GOOD.  In other federal government news, the National Guard Association head- Major General Michael McGuire- disputes U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin’s call for a permanent contingent of National Guard troops to defend the Capitol from disgruntled ‘Trump supporters.’  They want to pull out.  Speaking of the Biden administration’s desire to keep troops and fencing up around the capital, the residents of Washington, D.C. are protesting the illegal occupation of their city.  They want Fort Pelosi torn down and the troops returned home.
  66. 2021 Sunday B: Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton vows to continue the fight against the criminal actions of the Biden administration.   Meanwhile, U.S. Senator Joni Ernst, R-IA, is calling House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi a HYPOCRITE because the speaker is trying to overturn the election of Republican Marionette Miller-Meeks, R-IA 2nd congressional district as she won a close election.  Madam Pelosi is trying to strip Congresswoman Miller-Meeks of her seat and insert a rabid Democrat into her place.  Stand strong, Iowa!  Speaking of Pelosi, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA, blasts Pelosi as being little more than a hypocrite.  We say Speaker Pelosi is a loser, a feeble, senile old crone of a loser.  In other news, Arizona is going to conduct a FULL AUDIT of the 2020 Election after bags of shredded ballots were discovered by dumpster divers.  Karen Fann- president of the Arizona State Senate says that questions continue to arise over the authenticity of the election and that Maricopa County where much of the fraud occurred will have to answer for their actions.  We learned that approximately 660,892 ballots demand further investigation which would easily throw the state to President Donald J. Trump.  Speaking of election fraud, Phillip Kline of the Amistad Project says in so many words that new documents continue to arise showing collusion between Facebook and other social media entities with the Democrats to STEAL the 2020 Presidential Election.
  67. 2021 Sunday C: Across the country, one state after another are standing up to defy the “Pro-China Joe” Biden administration over its tranny rulings.  Utah, Michigan, North Dakota, Alabama, Mississippi, Montana, Texas, Missouri, Tennessee, and others are fighting back to protect girls’ and women’s sports from being overrun with sick males who claim they are ‘girls trapped in boys’ bodies’ (yeah, right).  Good for you, keep up the fight, we support you!  Speaking of sick people, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi is asking Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo to look into his heart and consider resigning.  Madam Speaker, this POS is not going to resign, even when his dimwitted twin Mayor Bill Di Blasio of New York City says Cuomo ‘should resign.’  The person who WON’T comment on “Killer Cuomo” is Vice President Kamala Harris, Joe Biden’s No. 2.  We thought she was big on, “WE BELIEVE SURVIVORS!  WE BELIEVE SURVIVORS!  WE BELIEVE SURVIVORS!”  So, what’s up, Kooky Kamala?  You don’t believe the survivors of Cuomo’s sexual depredations?
  68. 2021 Sunday D: Problems in Myanmar continue to escalate what with the junta sending militarized police into the streets to crush resistance to their criminal takeover of government.  At least 70 people have been killed by government forces with at least 12 shot dead over the weekend in Yangon.  The United States condemns such actions, yet Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi wants to maintain troops with heavy weapons capabilities in Washington, D.C., at her Fort Pelosi.   Speaking of violence, at a party in Chicago early this morning, 13 people were shot and two killed.  How about that ‘gun control?’  In other ‘violence news,’ protests erupt across the country on the one-year anniversary of Breonna Taylor’s death, many of the ‘protests’ becoming violent mob actions.
  69. 2021 Sunday E: The Biden administration continues to be exasperated over not hearing back from North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.  Maybe it’s because you called Kim a ‘thug’ and said you ‘wouldn’t talk to him unless he called you and said he was going to denuclearize his country.’  Kim doesn’t respect YOU, ‘President Biden.’  He knows YOU stole the election and are NOT the legitimate leader of our country.  Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin are traveling to Japan and South Korea to discuss North Korea and communist China.  After spending four days there, the two will head to Anchorage, Alaska, where they will be joined by National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan and their Chi-Com counterparts.  Guess they didn’t want to go to visit the Chi-Coms and bend over for the anal swabs.
  70. 2021 Sunday F: Even not yet a declared candidate in next year’s race for a Georgia U.S. Senate seat, NFL great Hershel Walker is leading communist candidate, Reverend Raphael Warnock, Democratic-Socialist.   Rev. Warnock- YOU cannot serve God and Karl Marx at the same time, sir.  We hope YOU lose.  Meanwhile, Alaska Senator Dan Sullivan, R-AK, is calling out “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s hypocrisy when it comes to NOT using natural gas, something the United States in general and Alaska in particular has massive reserves of, reserves that could be sold to foreign nations.  In other political news, Andrew Knaggs of Pacem Solutions International says that Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo is trying to create diversions such as lowering the age for seniors to obtain Chi-Vi vaccines to 60 from 65 so as to deflect heat from his shoulders for the 15,000-20,000 nursing home deaths HIS policies caused.  We won’t allow him to distract us, Mr. Knaggs.
  71. 2021 Sunday G: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 119,764,490 confirmed cases, +429,152, 2,651,578, confirmed deaths, +7,488, and 67,814,414 confirmed recoveries, +252,788.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,633,697 confirmed cases (same as yesterday), up 126,711 from yesterday’s reporting, 538,918 confirmed deaths (same as yesterday), UP 3,160, and 115,379,301 confirmed recoveries (we are freezing our daily adjustments until we see what’s happening tomorrow).[xiii]   It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic, senile drooling POS.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 210,441 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States (same as yesterday)- Senile Joe, in another 12 days, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the frigging ‘VID.
  72. 2021 Sunday H: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,620,894 confirmed cases, 56,351 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,646 confirmed cases, 451 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 352,614 confirmed cases, 5,183 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Delaware, aka the First State: currently, they have 90,381 confirmed cases, 1,507 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 818,548 confirmed cases, 6,008 confirmed deaths, and 776,099 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Czechia, one half of the former Czechoslovakia: 1,399,078 cases of the old Wuhan Waltz, the Xi Jinping debility: 23,226 confirmed deaths, and 1,209,799 confirmed recoveries.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, why even bother- they’re little more than manufacturers of biowarfare agents and will continue to be until the world takes them to the world court and charges them with the murders of more than 2 million people worldwide. 
  73. 2021 Sunday I: Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.837 per gallon, $3.551 in Hawaii, and $3.260 in Washington state.  Thank you, Joe, how about allowing fracking to continue as well as the Keystone XL Pipeline?  It would be beneficial for the people of this country.   Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,051,534,906,670 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.  Cloward and Piven running amok.  The country is going to implode.
  74. 2021 Sunday J: Drew Brees- famed quarterback for the New Orleans Saints for 15 of his 20 years as a pro- announced his retirement today.  The first five years of his career, he spent with San Diego.  Apparently, he cannot tolerate the new Cancel Culture Era of the modern-day National Football League.   Could Colin Kaepernick be coming to New Orleans soon?  Conversely, will they make a trade for Russell Wilson?  We will have to see…
  75. 2022 Monday: Given the way things are going in the world, there could be an update, then again, there might not.  C’est la vie.

As with any endeavor such as the AICPENDBLOG.COM, we goof up here and there and thus, we backtrack with today’s offering: “Rick Danko,” an album the bassist/vocalist with the band released on May 18, 1977.  We had to search around to find it and find it we did at Discogs, and this album is worthy of purchase by you.  Unlike Levon Helm, Danko penned all the tunes with a lyricist or two and had worthy musicians such as Ron Wood (Faces, Rolling Stones), Blondie Chapin (guitars, vocals), Eric Clapton (guitars), Doug Sahm of the Sir Douglas Quintet on guitars, Joe Lala (percussion, drums), Garth Hudson from the Band, and loads of others.  Some of our colleagues actually owned the vinyl version of this album and what we can tell you is that it’s extremely good.  Danko was a talented musician and vocalist and sung some of the Band’s best tunes such as “Stage Fright.”  We hope you will seek it out wherever you can find it and see if it’s right for you- you will be glad you did.

Monday, March 14, 2022:



Today in History, Sunday, March 14, 2021, Blog Post:

[i] We began promoting the music of the famed California surf-rock band, the Turtles, beginning on Tuesday, 03-September-2013 through Friday, 13-September-2013.

[ii] We look forward to doing the music of this famed funk-rock band.  The Ohio Players are amazing. 

[iii] We will present the music of Chicago- and its various members’ solo careers- sometime in 2030 so we hope you will remain with us until then.

[iv] Not sure as to when the AICPENDBLOG.COM will promote the music of the Talking Heads but when we do, you will also see the music of Blondie and Aerosmith shared as well.  Please, keep your eyes open for the day this magnificent event occurs. 

[v] We are unclear as to when we will begin promoting the music of the legendary British rock band, YES, but when we do, you will be the first to know.  This offering will go as long as- if not longer- than the Beatles and their individual members.   Please stay tuned.

[vi] We shared the music of the Stones beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members’ solo projects.  We sure as heck hope you check out the Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger, Brian Jones, Keith Richard, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman, and Mick Taylor.  Ronnie Wood you can find during the presentation of the Faces.

[vii] We hope to do the music of this icon, Dr. John, so please remain vigilant for when we do.

[viii] No clue as to when we will do the music of Tom Waits.  Stick around long enough and who knows, you might find out.

[ix] Likewise, we expect to offer the music of Alice Cooper sometime between 2025-2027.  Please stay tuned.

[x] Perhaps one day, we will also do the music of Neil Diamond, one of the all-time greatest singer-songwriters.  You will be glad we did as this performer deserves accolades from the entire planet.

[xi] We hope to promote the music of the Atlanta Rhythm Section one day, too.  You will be glad for the day we do.

[xii] Arizona State Attorney General Mark Brnovich is leading the fight against Joe Biden’s immigration ‘rules.’

[xiii] Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.
